Retirement for Cahooooooon ...

Ben Cahoon hang his boots. Slotback Alouettes will announce his retirement Wednesday.
An announcement will fall elsewhere in the day. The team held a press briefing in the afternoon for an "important announcement".
Cahoon, however remain in the world of football as a coach. It is to an American university that will look for his new career, possibly to Brigham Young University, where he has played.
Cahoon, 38, spent his 13 seasons in the CFL in Montreal. He reached nine times the 1000 yards and 65 touchdowns compiled in addition to having participated in all three championships with the team since his return to Montreal (2002, 2009 and 2010).
In 2010, his statistics were less flamboyant than in the past. For the first time in eight years, he came short of 1000 yards (703), but he still had his moment of glory.
In October he became the most prolific receiver in CFL history for the number of catches, surpassing the mark of Terry Vaughn (1006). He mounted his counter 1017.
In its roadmap also added eight Grey Cup appearances, 10 nominations in all-star and two titles of Canadian player of the year.
